By Andrea Barnet
Thursday, December 6, 7pm

In her new book Visionary Women, Andrea Barnet tells the story of four visionaries who profoundly shaped the world we live in today: Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters. With a keen eye for historical detail, Andrea Barnet traces the arcs of these women’s careers and explores how their work collectively changed the course of history. Andrea Barnet is an author, journalist, and was a contributor to The New York Times Book Review for 25 years. View the full 2018 NYC Audubon lecture schedule here.

New York City Audubon's lecture series is free and open to the public. It is held at Reidy Hall at the Unitarian Church of All Souls, Lexington Avenue between 79th and 80th Streets in Manhattan.

This series has been made possible by the support of Claude and Lucienne Bloch.
